HOW TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS ALL YEAR

     

First throw your xmas tree outside and leave it on your front porch.  To give you an accurate timeline, we planted our tree in early February after it had been on the porch for a month.

     
 

Next go outside and in another central part of the yard (near your stain garden) make a hole with a pickaxe.  Andrew is using model PA-7-439821 quality A-1 pick axe, available at select retailers throughout Canada and the United States.  A-1 Pick Axe: official pick axe of the Arbour Lake Sghool.

     
 

You want your 'tree hole' to be about 1.5 feet deep.  If the lawn is frozen this could be hard work.  You should grimace if you are going to work hard.

     
 

So, go get the tree already!

     

 

Now, put that sucker right in there.  Once the tree is in the hole, pack all the dirt back in around the trunk and use some rocks etc. to help prop it up.  If you've done it right your tree will withstand gale force winds, neighbours and heavy snowfall.

     
 
Pretty awesome.  Next year we're going to plant a whole forest instead of just one tree.
